A Results Based Health & Fitness Business

Run By Older Adults Who Understand!

Lance Roberts - Senior Personal Trainer

Hi, I'm Lance and I completed my personal training certification in 2008 (See list of Qualifications) below. The Exercise arm of the business started as The Fitness Factory Erina in January 2010.

Prior to starting my life in the fitness and wellness industry I was I had a diverse career as an owner of a business that developed, manufactured and distributed environmental filter products. We had major clients within the public and private sector. 

"My passion was health and fitness."

My diverse professional background and working life has given me an amazing set of communication skills that I now use to educate and influence my clients to achieve the mindset change they/you require to achieve exceptional and lasting results for your health and wellbeing.

Exercise Isn't Enough for Weight Loss

During 2010 I started to realize that although my fitness clients were getting fitter and enjoying our style of exercise, the clients who were using exercise alone to lose weight, were struggling.

This prompted a mini restructure whereby we completely rewrote the way we manage our weight loss clients. While exercise is still important we induct our weight loss clients into our keto weight loss program before we start the exercise.

Food is 80% of the weight loss process, Exercise is 20%. But where our programs are proving to be so successful is the mindset change we achieve with our clients. 

As a personal trainer & weight loss specialist I live by my philosophies to prove that they work. We maintain our own fitness levels through regular cardio-style training and strength training. Tammy & I also manage our diet in the same manner that we coach our weight loss clients.

Because we focus more on body composition we also like to maintain a particular body fat percentage rather than the pure focus on weight.

We lead by example, our clients are never asked to try anything we haven’t done! You will never be asked to do something we wouldn’t do!

Tammy Roberts - Medical Herbalist

Hi, I'm Tammy and I founded Motivating Health (Formerly Tamara’s Herbal & Natural Therapies) in 2003 after completing my diploma in Medical Herbalism through Southern Cross Herbal College.

Previous to this I spent the early years of my life starting and running my own Successful Health Food Takeaway shop in the Carbow Arcade in Gosford known as the Natural Approach. (And of course we did not sell Coke or Soft Drinks).

As a professional I work hard for my patient’s health but also believe I need to lead by example, therefore I live by what I teach my clients. How can I look my clients in the eye if I ask them to do something I wouldn’t or couldn’t do?

I feel very privileged that while geographically I am based in ERINA on the Central Coast of New South Wales I work with clients across Australia and around the world.

I have been operating from the same address since 2006 and I am proud to say that my list of clients grows every year based on referrals.
